I’m a happily married man and a father of three children right here in Westland. My Wife’s name is Linda and she is my greatest treasure. This June will be our 21st wedding anniversary and she has blessed me with my children Richard, Samantha, and Michael. My Children attend public schools and my eldest graduated in 2015 from John Glenn.  I was born at Annapolis Hospital in 1977 and lived with my parents in their first home on Hixford. I graduated from High School in 1995 and left shortly after for Basic Training with the United States Army. After serving 5 years on Active Duty, I returned home to Michigan, but continued to serve in the National Guard and Army Reserves. I bought my current home in 2008 and we love the city of Westland. I am a homeowner and I pay Westland Taxes.  As a homeowner in the City of Westland, I understand the weight and value of being a tax payer. I think it is important to know who is, and who is not when considering a candidate to represent you.

I work full time as the Director of Wireless Operations for 123.Net, a Michigan based telecommunications provider. I also own a small business providing network and wireless consulting services to small and large businesses on a project basis.

I serve on several commissions here in the city of Westland as well as a volunteer at many community events and neighborhood beautification projects.

In my spare time, I enjoy serving the Westland Area Jaycees. It has been a pleasure to see the organization grow and prosper and we continue to recruit young energetic civic-minded people here in our community. When not serving the local chapter, I work with the State organization as a mentor and trainer for chapter presidents across the state.
